Vegas has their odds for the Chiefs having an undefeated regular season, and they’re pretty good considering how rare it is.
The Chiefs have the same odds of going unbeaten in the regular season (33/1) as the Chargers have to win the Super Bowl.
Better odds than the Cardinals, Steelers, Titans and Vikings.
Just found that wild, considering only two teams have ever gone unbeaten through 17 games.

That being said, I wouldn’t make that bet, not because I don’t think their good enough to do it, but because Reid is known for resting starters, and I don’t think our backups can go 2-0.
Assuming the Chiefs’ starters go undefeated, they’ll probably clinch the top seed at roughly 15 wins, leaving 2 weeks where history says Reid will play backups. If those backups have a 25% chance of winning (which might be generous), that’s already 1/16 odds of just doing that, requiring the odds of going 15-0 with the starters to be roughly 50/50 for this line to make sense.
But that’s just me, what odds would you give them of going 17-0?
